    Breuninger, Düsseldorf, Germany

    Rug Couture were asked by Boden to create and manufacture a range of rugs for their clients Breuninger for their new five floor flagship department store in Düsseldorf.  With a fifty year pedigree in the industry we were proud to assist Boden on this extremely prestigious project.

    The Stuttgart-based fashion and lifestyle house Breuninger are the anchor tenants of the new mixed use Kö-Bogen or ‘King's Bow' development at Schadowplatz in Düsseldorf which was designed by the celebrated NYC based architect Daniel Libeskind. Düsseldorf-based project developers ‘die developer' were able to get Daniel Libeskind involved in the draft on the areal of the 9,000sqm property that measures a total floor area of up to 40,000sqm. By artfully connecting the city's central park and historic commercial centre and by expanding public space and inserting landscape elements; Studio Libeskind have produced a mixed-use commercial complex that both enriches and extends the highly frequented Königsallee with large flagship stores, unique store concepts and restaurants.

    Fashion Garden

    Centred around the narrative of a ‘Fashion Garden’ the store concept was inspired by the neighbouring Hofgarten Parkland. Photographer Uwe Spoering.

    Schwitzke & Partners were appointed as executive architects for the whole project and HMKM as creative interior designers for four of the five floors (with the basement retail design by Liganova). As lead architect Daniel Libeskind was the perfect choice.

    Kö-Bogen facade

    The façade of Kö-Bogen is intricately patterned: horizontal from some vantage points, vertical from others, and conceived so that the arrangement of stone and glass panels and aluminium louvers express a homogenous reading. Photographer Uwe Spoering.

    Fourteen geometric designs were chosen by Boden which worked beautifully with the aesthetic of the building and the concept store itself. All over 2m in width/diameter featuring exclusive Rug Couture designs hand tufted in New Zealand Wool in our superior HT5 quality; many numbered up to six colours with hand carved accents. All rugs were completed as part of our special six week service for Boden, naturally flame retardant and stain inhibition treated for heavy use within such a public space.
